We started work on the Warren a year ago and thought it was a good time to take stock. We have put our heart and soul into the Warren to turn it into a venue that's just right for Modern Jive - huge sprung dance floor, padded leather chairs, nice high stage, new heating, etc, etc.
The Warren as a Centre of Excellence We want to turn the venue into a centre of dance excellence too. As many people know, we are working with the British Dance Council to agree a consistent syllabus for Modern Jive - this will result in people being able to move between classes and find the same teaching in each approved class - which is why Andy is so particular about things like consistent footwork timing, frame and dancing distance - it's alsol about having fun but being safe at the same time. It's no fun and increases the chances of injury if you aren't dancing the same dance with the same footwork timing - more like some people driving on the right and others driving on the left! There need to be simple rules.
The Warren is Also Available for Private Bookings - Of course, we can.t run a Modern JIve dance at the Warren every Saturday - people like variety, And that is why we've continued to run events in venues like the Drill Hall, East Worthing and the Steyning Centre. This leaves the Warren available for private bookings - we alread have quiz nights, birthday parties, Rock n Roll, Rock and Soul nights - please give us a call if you'd like to book the Warren for your private party - social or business.
Over the next few months we will be developing the bar area and installing disabled facilities - although these are not really required for our dance customers, we host a mixed ability theatre and dance group with quite a few disabled students - we need to install "Doc M" compliant toilets which are suitable for wheelchair users and make other changes to offer facilities to young people with behavior related conditions like autism. As our landlords, Worthing College, have no budget to pay for this upgrade, we will be running fund raising events to pay for them and making up the difference out of our own pockets.
